Due to the massive use of profane liturgical music and Gregorian chants, the band refers to its music as Extreme Ritual Metal.

the name DARKEND was crafted by anagramming the ancient Sanskrit word REKDA’DN, taken from a vedic funeral rite of passage celebrated in order to grant to the remains of shamans and warlocks the wisdom of shadows; that sacred word stands for “MIST OF THE ELSEWHERE”.
